Earth was showing off…

Tuesday Chatter

Today was a gorgeous day for my walk. It was in the upper 60’s and a slight breeze. Earth was showing off its Spring finery and wouldn’t you know it I didn’t  have  my phone with me! So no new pictures.  Bummer.

This picture I took last year but the tree is still there
and it is just as beautiful this year as last.
This photo I took a week or so ago.
The azaleas were almost at their peak
and added some color to the front of
the building where I live.
After I got home I dust mopped and when I went out on the balcony to shake the mop free of cat hair there was no breeze.  Yay! Perfect for spray painting my pots.Three are done and one more to do. I would have done the one more but with all the pollen I had inhaled this afternoon, I started with sneezing fits and decided  I had had enough  and came inside.

The month of April I join the A to Z Challenge
so the next  four Tuesday Chatter’s will be focusing on the letters
D4P j4p p4p  v4p
I hope whatever I happen upon or think about on my walks
start with those letters so I have something to write
using those letters on their respective Tuesday.

The world wrapped in mist…

  Two Shoes Tuesday’s prompt this week is



I love to see the world wrapped in mist.
Everything fuzzy with all the hard edges blurred.
Sound in the city muted to a soft rumble.
Air infused with the scent of sweet ambrosia.
Gentle touches of wispy dew.
Earth being bathed; renewed and refreshed.
Baptized in readiness for new wonders.

Thursday, hot and humid but thankful…

Summer rain

The weather here has been sultry hot.  You know the kind of hot that makes the air seem thick.  Every year I think it is hotter than the year before but really I just notice the heat more.  Seems the older I get the more I am like my mother and grandmother, they were always “shvetzin”.

It has rained most afternoons. Loud thunder claps and big lightning bolts streaking through the sky and big big rain drops.  Then it calms down and the rain is soft and pretty.  Then it stops and the sun comes back out.

THEN, steam comes up off the streets and the heat and humidity make it feel like you are in some kind of ritual tent sweating your way to a higher state of being.  But really you are just sweating and getting stinky.

With all that said…I am truly thankful for the beauty of this earth and the different seasons.  The summer storms are awesome and combined with the heat there is a lushness in the gardens and parks and along the roads.  Every thing meant to be green and growing is flourishing.

Today I think I may wilt in this weather yet I am thankful for the natural beauty of the earth…

…and the un-natural beauty of air conditioning.
